Join the 30,000 pharmacy professionals who have already taken their first steps to revalidation
Over 30,000 of you have already taken your first steps to revalidation by creating an account on the new myGPhC system
If you haven’t yet, you’ll need to:
- use the activation code in the letter we have sent you to create an account on the new myGPhC system – see our step by step guide for help, and our troubleshooting tips if you are having technical problems
- take a look at the revalidation resources on our website, particularly the revalidation framework
- start recording your CPD records in myGPhC, so you’re ready to submit four CPD records the next time your registration renewal is due, on or after 31 October 2018
- remember to take any current CPD records out of www.uptodate.org.uk by 1 June if you would like to keep them
If you have not received your letter, then you will need to call us, check your contact details, and we will send you another letter. We can’t give your activation code to you over the phone because we need to verify your address as part of the account sign up.
Have your colleagues signed up? If you’ve already created your account, and had a look at our resources, please help and encourage your colleagues to get on board too!
Join us for a revalidation webinar
If you have any questions about revalidation, sign up to our webinar and join us on Wednesday 6 June 2018 at 19:00.
Peer discussion resources
We’ve now produced additional guides for the peer discussion. There are separate guides for you, for your employer, and for the person acting as your peer.
You should look at these now, but you will not need to start arranging your peer discussion until your second year of revalidation.
We will also be preparing some examples of good CPD and reflective account records to help you carry out and record CPD effectively – look out for those in future editions of Regulate.
Managing your CPD and revalidation portfolio
We will not keep you the information you input into myGPhC for longer than we need it, which will usually be around two years. So if you want to keep a complete record of your ongoing learning, you will need to do this elsewhere, for example by:
- keeping your own hard copy or electronic record
- storing it in an electronic portfolio – your professional body, your employer, your national training organisation or your indemnity provider may provide these
